Senior Data Analyst - Product, Features, & Growth

Canva’s Commitment and Mission

At Canva, we celebrate diversity. We deeply believe that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key to building the best product, team and company. We look for many different skills and abilities, as well as how you can enhance Canva and our culture. So, even if you don’t think you quite meet all of the skills listed or tick all the boxes, we’d still love to hear from you! 

Our mission at Canva is to empower the world to design and since launching in 2013, we have grown exponentially, amassing over 86 million monthly active users across 190 different countries and a team of over 3,000 people… and the best bit is that we’ve only achieved 1% of what we know we’re capable of. 

Join us and design your future.

At Canva, our mission is to empower the world to design, and we’re looking for insightful data analysts who can help us make that happen.

Our product has grown enormously in the last few years. We now have 10s of millions of users generating enormous quantities of data every single day. To help us fuel our future growth, we need to better understand our data - this is where we need your help.

We're looking for self-motivated individuals who are curious about our product and our users, and who are excited to seek out valuable insights. We don’t want you to just be a resource that answers questions - we want you to act as a genuine data partner with your team and the  broader business. We have a LOT of data and need people who can use their skills to help us make the most of it!

You’ll be coming into a diverse team of more than thirty people, who really do enjoy finding answers to the problems that our users have. We’re looking forward to continuing to grow our team and gaining a range of new perspectives and ideas on how we can achieve our goals and help more people.

Role Responsibilities

    • Find insights that help us understand both Canva and our customers - we want you to be creative and insightful, rather than just throwing the usual metrics at the wall to see what sticks
    • Suggest and run interesting experiments that will actually move our metrics - when we push tests to 100% we want to actually see the bump in the relevant graph
    • Build and maintain dashboards for our product teams, and make them look really good - you don’t need to be a designer or have any design talent, you just need to want to build cool things
    • Own projects, data models, dashboards, and other artefacts and keep them up-to-date and high quality in a hypergrowth environment
    • Use our giant databases to answer the sort of questions that sound really simple but turn out to be challenging (and fun!)
    • Help us extend data literacy and curiosity throughout the whole company

Required Skills & Experience

    • Strong competency with SQL; experience with data warehouses such as Snowflake, Redshift, or BigQuery is a plus!
    • Experience wrangling and analysing data using Python or R
    • Experience with optimising product funnels, running experiments, and building dashboards that effectively communicate results and outcomes
    • A grounding in mathematics / statistics and a bachelor's degree in a STEM area is preferred; but not required
    • Experience with very large data sets is a huge plus, but not required
    • Strong communication skills - verbal and written - be able to break down complex topics into simple solutions and ideas
One of our core values at Canva, “Being a force for good” means we are actively working towards a world that isn't just good for a small few, but one that’s good for everyone. We believe deeply that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key for building the best product for our equally diverse community. To achieve this, we need to constantly work towards making Canva the best place to work, for everyone.
